Well obviously your dd shouldn't choose volleyball, boys brigade, boy scouts and gym as these are only for boys, as stated in your post. So cross out all those.

As your dd has no musical talent, cross out all the music-related CCAs like Chinese Orchestra, Symphonic Band, guzheng etc.

Can she play basketball? Can she dance? If not cross those out as well.

So what's she left with? Mostly the uniformed groups and societies.

Does your dd need the CCA points at O levels? If she does, go for the uniformed groups rather than societies/clubs as she can get more points via UGs.
